Monthly Meeting: Best Places to Bird in Ontario
September 11 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Mike Burrell, co-author of Best Places to Bird in Ontario, will be the speaker. This guide, released last spring, outlines the top 30 birding destinations in Ontario, with up-to-date information on hard to find species, directions, birding tips and much more.
Mike Burrell is a birder par excellence, he thinks he has been interested in birds since he was able to lift up a pair of binoculars. He didn’t get serious about birds until he was 15 after he attended the Doug Tarry Young Ornithologists Internship at Long Point Observatory. Since then it has been all birds, all the time. He has worked at Long Point Bird Observatory, with several environmental consulting firms, with Bird Studies Canada and now is with the Natural Heritage Centre. For the past 21 years, with his father and his brother Ken, he has participated in the Great Canadian Birdathon collectively raising $37,000 to support the work of Bird Studies Canada and other conservation organizations and projects.
